Welsh 'Gatwick' airport plan for Severnside defended

The man behind proposals for a Gatwick-sized airport in Wales has defended his ambitions following claims they are "far-fetched".

Both Cardiff and Bristol airports would need to be sold if a £5bn Severnside Airport was to be built near Newport.

Cardiff airport said it was focussing on improvements while Bristol called the plan unrealistic.

But John Borkowski said there are too many regional airports and a larger hub would boost the economy.
